Wow, I was talking to Setsuna on the phone, and I mentioned a lot of my wilds had nests but stopped chasing the females, so he said wreck it and make them strat a new one while I was wrecking the Stiktos nest I strated seeing fry falling out!! WOOOPPPSS!!
All is well he rebuilt it, funny thing I never saw before the male and female both had their stress stripe pattern she didn't seem to be trying to eat anything, the stiktos by far are the humblest ones I have bred...in other news....I had a hard biting Mahachai male bite the gill plate off of his female...she was real bad so I had to euthanize her...This really hurts because I liked her a lot and this fish is endangered.
This is one of the bad things about breeding, there is always a danger of losing one or both fish due to injury or secondary infection, I always put them in salt after a spawn and I always keep my Mahachai in salted water because their natural habitat is brackish.
